How Zazzle Collections Are Helpful In Your Searches

Did you know there are two paths of looking for matching items on Zazzle?

The first path is the designers categories and the second path is through the designers collections. 

Collections are specifically designed by store owners for customers to find a variety of products with a specific connection all in one place. 

I'm going to focus on collections for this post.
Collections are created and organized at the whim of each designer. You may find a collection that features all items in a single or similar design such as a wedding suite, bridal or baby shower suite or other special occasion. 

The examples below illustrate one of my collection suites from the PaPr Emporium store. 

This image below is the front and back design of a bridal shower invitation. 

How would you know if this is part of a collection with other products you might want for your event? The red arrow shows you where to look for the collection link. 

If you don't see a collection link in that location, you will see a row of other similarly designed products by other store owners. 

If you click that link it leads to the collection (bridal suite in this case) where you can view all the products that you might need for a special event. Now they are all in one place making your viewing easier. 

If you don't see something in a collection, please contact me and I will work with you to see if we can produce what you need.


You may find some collections that offer different products and designs but all in a specific color. There are also collections that are all the same product but with a variety of designs.

Let me know if this tip was helpful and even your thoughts on this Brunch and Bubbly design.

Easily Customize Party Treats With Edible Frosting Rounds

During the "stay at home" time frame of the Covid 19 pandemic, I read how a lot of people were finding their love of new things like baking, sewing, and painting just to name a few. 

Since I have a home office, I didn't have much change to life except a new puppy. But that's for another post. 

Reading social media posts made me hungry as I scrolled through photos of luscious looking meals, snacks, and baked goods. A lot of folks found comfort in finding, testing, and sharing photographs of their creations. 

It made me think of the Zazzle food options one might choose for a special occasion. 

One of the fun options is edible frosting roundsYou make your favorite cupcake recipe and can add custom frosting rounds to the top of your frosting. 

The frosting rounds are 2" in diameter and come 15 to a sheet. A minimum order of two sheets is required. The thin sheets of frosting are peeled and pressed onto a nearly flat soft dessert frosting. 

These rounds have a shelf life of 12 months with no refrigeration necessary if stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. 

You see the sheet, rounds and what they look like on cupcakes below. Most of my designs allow you to customize text and photos on some.

Is this something you would consider as a party planner. Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.

Watch the Custom Transformation of a Notebook

Ever wonder what options you have for some customized products at TheAspenStand?

Well, here's a quick lesson on a notebook that can be customized in a variety of way. 

The cute photograph you see on the outside (front and back) is just one option you can change. There are numerous changes that you can choose from on the inside and with the binding color. 

Here are a few details about the 8.5" spiral bound square notebook. It has 60 interior sheet which offers a total of 120 pages. It offers you a choice of eight interior designs. 

This kitten photograph on the front and back can be replaced with your favorite photos. Use the same for front and back or different ones. You can also leave the covers as you see it.

The template text name you see on the image below can be changed or totally removed. 

Below you'll see examples of the template text, interior style, and binding color. 

Head to this cute notebook link when you are done here and play around with the template text, binding colors and interior styles to see how easy it is to make a custom gift.
